It’s not exactly warm. The sun keeps disappearing behind the clouds and there’s a cold wind blowing but it’s a beautiful day. The perfect day for savouring an ice cream while you stroll along the prom, without the risk of it melting too fast.
On weekends, school holidays and many days in between you can find one of Forte Bros. vans selling their locally made ice cream at the end of Sea Road. There’s another van at the other end of the village, down by the river mouth and a third along the coast, above Cocklawburn beach. It would’t be true to say they’re there whatever the weather but it takes more than a few showers to send the vans back to base.
